This was a project in my animation uni to animate a character to this very soundtrack. It was my first time animating in flash, so I found it quite hard to get my head around at first. Once I thought about it, just animating instead of using a computer program, I seemed to work quite well.

As you can see, I love squash and stretch. lol The character model was pretty bad for moving him much, but it was a good lesson for basic animation.
Time: 1 week.

Pretty neat.
Kinda messy art though. I kept thinking, "If this art was cleaner and polished up, this would look so much better."
It's also got some unnatural movements and lacks flow and easing. Too many sharp and glitchy movements.

But who am I to talk...

lol this is the first time you have seen this man?! Where have you been?! ^_^
Firstly the character wsn't mine. The background shit it, but that was a 5 minute quickie handing in just before the deadline. This was the first time I had actually used flash...ever, and I only really animated, not drawing anything. The animation was done in about 3 uni days take away the time for lectures.

The begin is really jarring. I blame it on my inexperience and trying to really push the squash and stretch technique which i dont think is done enough in most flash. Plus i didnt want to motion tween things. The sharp movements doesnt give it that flash look, but i was hoping it would give it the more 2D traditional look. It doesnt. But seriously, this model was so shit....i wish he has elbows and knees at least. lol

thanks though man. i wish i had another model kinda like this, slightly more articulate, just so i could mess around animating in flash again.

so yeh, be gentle, first timer here done in a few days and expected to do sync and work with a crappy model. ^_^

thanks alot. it was my first time animating in flash, so it was quite daunting not just animating something so elaborate for a first time, but synching to music and completing it in a week. :)
